With whispers of imminent advertising and the elimination of illegal material, the exodus from YouTube may soon begin - or so hopes Arik Czerniak, chief executive of its competitor Metacafe. With roughly 16 million unique visitors per month, the website claims to be nipping at GooTube's heels.

The WSJ reports that Google's in talks to buy up YouTube, most likely to supplement or replace their flailing Google Video. As of now, Google Video lets companies like MTV, the NBA, and Nickelodeon sell videos on their store, whereas YouTube is mostly people uploading last night's South Park episode.
What does this mean to you if it's true? Well, our guess is they're probably going to consolidate the two video sites. Doesn't really make sense to have two sets of developers working on what amounts to the same project. So one of the two is probably going away. As for Google, we'd like to see them work with handset providers and cellular providers so you can get GooTube on your mobile phone.
